The estimates for rice-straw generation indicates that the volume of residue generation has increased from 157 mt in 2012-13 to 169 mt in 2017-18 of which around 60% are burnt in open field in India. Despite remain concentrated in north western India in winter season, the farm fire incidences are being reported from other parts of India even during the summer season. The causes of crop residue burning are not only techno-economical but also social and political and can be attributed to non-convergence of policies too. Any strategy to address the menace should not overlook the social as well as policy and implementational convergence to be more holistic and pragmatic.
